  •  As far as running "fake" canddates... (1+ / 0-)

    Running spoiler candidates is illegal per section 12.05 of the Wisconsin Election Practices -

    "False representations affecting elections. No person may knowingly make or publish..., or cause to be made or published, a false representation pertaining to a candidate or referendum which is intended or tends to affect voting at an election."

    Not that skirting and/or breaking existing laws will slow them down in the least. I can't imagine Van Hollen even considering prosecuting any Republican these days.

    Besides, it would be difficult to "prove" that a fake candidate did not have a sudden "change of heart" in the current climate.
